I'm a little bored so In an effort to try and inject myself back into Datsun's, I bring you.....my daily driver 3shittyZee.

SO metal picked this up last labor day. I have a 100 mile commute, so I decided that the most reliable thing I could enjoy would be a 350Z. I hate new cars, and I'm really  picky since I've always enjoyed my Datsuns, but having access to almost any aftermarket and OE part available at work, I opted to go ahead and search one out since my JCW Mini was getting annoying. Picked up my '07 HR from some dealer east of Atlanta. It's not much to see, and wasn't too quick but it's comfortable, reliable, and fun as hell. 

 

I told myself I was just gonna leave it alone and drive it, but that didn't last long.

Got a deal on a set of double staggered Enkei RPF1's so I couldn't help myself.

Within a few weeks these asshats at work convinced me to invest in a Tomei Titanium exhaust. Greatest investment ever. Picked up 32whp after tuning and made 292 on stock intakes.

Installed our long tube cold air intakes, now at 305whp. Little bit of Gold because I'm a ricer and car about intake temps.

Took it out on the track last december for some shenanigans.

We retired some BC Racing BR type coilovers from a coworkers Turbo G35 before Global Time Attack, opting for the new Digressive Piston BC coilovers. Got 3rd place in his class.

Whenever I think that I'm out of my mind for putting this much time and money into an old Datsun, all I have to do is look some of your threads to know that I'm not nearly as whack as you are.

You're going to skin a few knuckles, stand up too fast and bump your head, hunt around the floor for the nuts and bolts you dropped, invent a few new cuss words and when you're finished you'll say "That wasn't so hard after all!"

Z1 Motorsports ;) So worth it! We did initial testing on my car, and found another 10whp on a hot rainy day. The filters are a one off design, and integrate velocity stacks into the base.

Because I haven't updated in a while, here's a pic of it shooting towards the esses on Road Atlanta chasing a TT Z32 last October. He got passed.

I actually took a picture of it yesterday. I had my camera, saw an interesting perspective, and snapped it. 

Since I last updated, the car has gotten giant 14'' brakes, new 200tw Nexen tires, and a variety of other wild bullshit that I really didn't need to spend money on, but did anyways like a Eurospec rear fog light.

For shits and giggles, our Time Attack 370Z circa this morning still in Global Time Attack trim. We took first place in Street RWD class at Road Atlanta Saturday in this monster. It makes about 560whp and still has a lot left in it.
